About

APRS, Automatic Packet Reporting System is an ham radio-system that uses packet radio to send real time tactical information. APRS has been developed by Bob Bruninga, callsign WB4APR. More information about APRS can be found at www.aprs.org or at wikipedia.

The goal of this website is to present all sent aprs information (that has reached an igate) in a user friendly way. This website is maintained by me Per Qvarforth SM4WJF (I'm a Swedish ham radio operator).

I named the website APRS Direct since each user browser will be connected directly to our own APRS-IS server (with no intermediate database-server). By having a direct connection to an APRS-IS server we can achive a REAL real-time APRS feed.

Track Direct

This website uses the product "Track Direct", developed by me. The product "Track Direct" consists of several modules used by tracking websites.
